ZEN GARDENS KYOTO

DAISEN-IN, GINKAKUJI, RYOAN-JI, TENRYUIJ, SOGENCHI

These zen gardens are designed to stimulate meditation, intend to imitate the intimate essence of nature,
not its actual appearance, and to serve as an aid to meditation about the true meaning of life.


MYOSHIN-JI ZEN GARDENS

the area known as "flower garden".
The Zen gardens of Myoshin-ji had concentrated landscapes of symbolic meaning into relatively small plots of land.

Zen gardens are notable for the stark rocks-and-sand landscapes, which we tend to think of as visual renderings of satori, the state of enlightenment.

Literally hundreds of temples have been built and destroyed over the course of the centuries – yet some of them have survived for us to visit them.

Gaudí's work represents the genius of the architect, expressing peculiar spatial qualities, ductility of undulating lines
